About Healthy Connections Knoxville
A stable, healthy relationship is strongly linked to physical and emotional health and is a fundamental building block of a healthy community. However, Tennessee is one of ten states with the highest divorce rates, and broadly accessible programs for strengthening couple relationships have been nonexistent in Knoxville.
Statistically, 80-90% of couples seeking divorce never seek professional counseling, and by their second year of marriage, 50% of newlyweds seriously doubt their marriage will last. A majority of couples experiencing unhappiness and dissatisfaction in their relationships can turn this around with help from the right resources.

Healthy Connections Knoxville aims to grow a network of church and community organizations that provide effective and accessible relationship assistance to citizens of Knoxville and surrounding counties. We believe that church and community organizations can provide research-proven relationship assistance to help couples grow healthy, stable relationships.
We train clergy, community volunteers, and practitioners to provide research-based Marriage/Relationship Education (MRE) designed to strengthen the relationships of all couples.
